US model numbers/parts for appliances in general usually cannot be sourced in the DR. That is because the same look alike model in the DR is in fact different/inferior in many ways.
I have imported several appliances from the US for personal use. By way of example, two used refrigerators imported circa 2005 and 2012 (both bought new by me in the US) are still going strong in the DR.
Would you say the same thing for laptops and/or tablets? Thanks.
